World Leaders Should Support Israel's Offensive
By David Holcberg (UK Daily Telegraph, July 26, 2006)
World leaders are trying to halt Israel's war of self-defense in Lebanon by denouncing it as "disproportional."
But Israel has the right to defend itself and to take all the necessary actions to ensure that those who threaten its people are neutralized. Clearly, Israel is still under threat. Even after ten days of bombing Hezbollah's positions in Lebanon, most of the group's leadership, membership and supporting population are still at large.
If world leaders had a shred of decency, they would be supporting--not denouncing--Israel's response to the terrorists that threaten it.
